To heed the parson:

Ile treads no changeless, narrow rounds
Of old belief, but far from bounds

"For newer life brings Ismer needs,
And truth outgrows our threadbare orcostds,"
Says the old parson.

Our friend is gr:Aving -very old,
And rich in nli the hoaroed 'gold
Which hearts alone can have and hold;
riches that men 'pave behind
Are not the riches to my mind,"
Quoth the old parson.
He still will bare the good lie gave,
When, all lila earthly errands ended,

making shoes.
It was no common-place bead nor prosaic
face over xeihich the trembling shadows of
the vines fell, and no trade or calling could
have made it so. Being a genius, this man
should have repined over his fate, but he
did not. The last and wax-ends gave him
independence; and_ in that 'he rejoiced.—
Perhaps some hope beckoned him onward—
perhaps some dreams were dreamed upon
that cobbler's bench which might be real
ized in time.
Now, as be bent over his last, Miss Lillie
Wharton, drawing reinat the gate beyond,
thought to herself that any ono with black
eyes and.golden hair and a dimple in the
chin must be beautiful; wondering why,
looking fur this ideal face in the saloons at
Belgravia, at Brighton, and Scarborough,
and in her own well-bred country circle,
she had never met it Until; a year before,
she came to this porch to be measured for a
pair of- slippers, heard the thud of a crutch,
(always n-ifying thing to her nerves, because
it spoke of pain and distortion and other
disagreeable things,) and saw the face t she
had dreamed of until she was three-and
twenty, but had'never before set eyes-upon
save in a picture in the Louvre.'
She herself was a bright brunette,. with
carmine cheeks, and eyes in each of .which
a diamond seemed imprisoned. She looked
"a creature not too fair and good for hu
man nature's daily food," but certainly one
who knew nothing of human nature's toil
and pain, of poverty, or grief. She - was an
orphan, it is true, but her parents died be
fore she was old enough - to know them, and
she had been. petted and flattered all her
life, as heiresses in particular are wont to
be when they are as beautiful as Lillie
She took her unseen survey of her ideal
face for a moment, and then, in a cheerful,
sweet voice, coiled hel'OSS the fence;
" Are you too deep in your study to think
of ehoes, Mr. Harlowe, or, may r come in
and be measured? Sit still; you see I am
off Dame Darden already; she is as gentle
as a pet lamb, What a day this is to run
wild in! Were it always such weather, I
think we should never have Lo tees
only, perhaps, a vine-covered pittreh or so,
like this we're under. Put a 'Tie in your
next verses, will you? They arc so beauti
ful, and poets always neglect ,fliem."
" All vines aro beautiful, I t.liink," staid
Isaac, drawing a chair forward' for the lady.
" I never see one but I think of a woinan.
It's a hackneyed comparison, I know, but a
good ono none the less, The vine, a grace
ful, gentle. woman; the oak, a great slid
wart man to which she clings, See, our
vines are doing it since they have, climbed
to the top of the trellis. They hang upon
the long oak brunch there as a bride hangs
upon her husband's arm. Were I a tree, I
should like to be that oak with the vines
about my branches. Do such fancies come
into your head, Miss Wharton?"
He wasnot a " stalwart fellow," not an
oak among men. The thought came into
his mind that a vine might never twine
about him.
_ I NVe cannot, however, tell you
what thought was in her eyes that she veiled
from him, lest be should read it, with her
lathes. ' -
"They were taking their dinner in the
field yonder," she said, "as I came past.--
Pattie and Jane were serving it out to them
—as fresh and bright as roses. How do
they, manage RO witch cooking? I envy the
'farmers' wives their strength and energy,—
Yet lam no frail creature. I can • ride all
'day and dance all night, I assure you." •
• You know nothing of Work.a.day. life,
Miss Wharton," said, Num respectfully."`
The back is - altrays.fitted to' bear the bur
den, 1 believe, as the heart is."
• Just a little sigh caught his breath then,
as though his heart might have a burden on
it. And then be turned to her with a bright,
pleasant look, - and _she_ answered with a
smile, such' as, had the truth been known,
sheave to no one else. ,And the two fell
a-talking—as they always - did when they
were together, though only the matter of'
shoes led to those meeilugsof poetry,,'and
music, and new books, and of the thoughts.

Miss Wharton rode off on her pony., She

" In other words, you mean that I am a

But every shoemaPer is not like you,"
said the gipsy, "You read a great deal in

.-Isaac laughed.
-"Ton are a shrewd woman," be said;
"you knoW how to flatter."
-t` It's a hand that has a good many things

it's of no use. You like a girl very well."
"I like all &la," said Isaac.
" But you - love one," said the gipsy.-4
"D i di you ever have your fortune told by a
gentilne -gipsy? If, you have, you know
that she will have the truth out of you some.-
bow, laugh at her pretenses as you may."
Perhaps this was why Isaac, paling a lit
tle, said nothing, and so made confession.
" You saw her to-day," continued the
gipsy; positively.
"Why didn't you say what - was in your
heart?" said the gipsy. ".To love a girl
and never tell her so! Is that the way you

"'ion have seen me talking to a young .

"The stars saw it," said the gipsy. "Lis

-Isaac did not go home to supper that
night, nor did ho see any one 'to Speak to
until morning. He made his way to the
' top of a green hill that basked in the moon
light that evening, and sat there all alone.
The lights in the village shone out like
stitil come to - arth awhile and grown gross
er. Overhead the real stars shone with their_
pure diamond light. But the radiance that
caught his eye the oftenest was tat which
fell through the white curtained indow of
an'upper room_in .Miss Wharton's house—
het awn room, where, as he knew, she sat
on'-solitary evenings; not many, for the
heiress had hosts of friends, as Nvhat heiress
has not? And the dwelling was often full
of guests, and-resonant of music and laugh
ter and the sound of merry voices and of 1
dancing feet. 1"
The light burned long that nigbt, and a
shadow passed between it and the curtain—
a graceful f girlish shadow,; with its head
bent [limn upon its bosoui as it was not used
to bend. Yet Isaac Marlowe, as be arose
to go homeward when at last the light was
out and the shadow went to and fro no
more, said to himseW
"It is well. There Gan be no true happi
ness in love while the
.shadow of
, pride or
shame hangs athwart its pathway.'
The next day Isaac worked at his bench
in the.old spot under the vines on the porch,
and '-Miss Wharton's shoes- were made as
daintily as shoes could be.
But she did not ride past on Dame Dur
den' nor stop at the garden gate that day or
for litany days after.. A. servant came for
the little boots at last, and paid their price
with - a littlq air' of condescension peculiar
to aervantsi in rich people's houses when
they tire away front home, And Miss Whar

. . ,
- So it Came to pass that Miss Wharton re
toained at the farmhouse. . ,
She dressed no more in silk attire, nor
were there diamonds in her ears. She - went
about with the !daughters of the house, and
learned of then to Milk the cows, and
churn the gold u butter, , and cook -dinner
for sturdy troops of farm hands. - 'k.-.
Her hands were not as white, -but her step
was just es light and her latigh as merry.—
In the evening she sang: to them ballads that
had filled the halls of fashion - with their
sweetness oftentimes, and site told the lis•
teriikrr 'girls of things that she had seen and
Beard, of scenes amidst which she had
dwelt as a sister just returned to them
Might. And sometimes she sat with Isaac
in the shadow of the vines, and the two
were wondrously happy. .
And summer passed, and autumn came,
and winter was at - hand ; when slie said to
him i
" Isaac, I must learn , a trade, you know.
Teach me to do what a woman may in
He looked at her quietly a moment and
then said:
"Do you really mean it?"
"I really inean it," she answered. " Why
So he taught her. And the next evening
he laid in her lap a book, riew and yet un
cut, which be had brought with him from
the nearest town in the ,afternoon. She
looked at the title and sallied.
"It is the story the papers praise so," she
said, - "the book"by the unknown author.—
I -- have wanted to read it very 'much. Is it
really so good?"
"'fell me," he said, and left her. 1
And at her work, the next day she ? kept
the book beside her, and read it bits at a
time; wept over - it ; laughed over it, and
thought to herself:
" Oh, h woman's heart, what a strange
thing it lit How one could love the man
who wrote it."
The book lay open upon her knees when
Isaac came to her side in the twilight. They
were alone in the great sitting•l•oom. All
was very still and peaceful. Within, the
firelight lay red upon the walls; without,
the pearly gray of the sky and landscape
mingled. Isaac bent over her and looked
into her eyes. They met his quietly and
sweetly. He sat down upon the footstool at
her side, and took her hand and held it.—
No word was spoken for awhile. They
heard lite crisp crackle of the fire, the whis
tle of some farm hand in the road without
—all within wti's still.
At last Isaac said:
" I wish I was a king, Lillie, to offe you
my kingdom; but as it is, "nay dear, will you
take me with the nothing that I have be
sides?" -
She answered:.
"If - you love me, Isartc" •
" I have always loved you," he. said.—
"You know that. There was a time when
I never thought that I should ask , kou to be
my wife. But now Ido not think. you will
be ashamed of the shoemaker, or' wince at
the sound of the crutch - ; else I should hope
that even now—just now—you would feel
sure of..it, and tell me so."
"Did I ever wince?" -
" Yes, Lime."
She put her arms gently about his neck,
and kissed him.
"It does not matter to me whether you
are king or shoemaker now," she said; "and

And when the June roses were id bloom
they were married—simply and quietly, as
poor folks should be. But after the wed
ding was over Isaac gave his wife a gift.
"The book I liked so," she said; smiling.
"Only the author's name is in this vol

" I would not win you by telling you so,"
he Si " 1 shall, they tell me, be rich end

I think she shed a tear or two. She was
in a tremor of glad pride.
"It is you, then,
that all the • world bas
been praising, and you never told me.",
" Aro yoU angry?' ,
he asked.
"DlO,""she said, "for I have my own se

was ever taken from me. A codicil in my
grandpa's will, found only lately, left it to

Young men with excellent purposes some

no soul exceptifor his busineiis is a "poor

ing is worth more than a hundred thousand
dollars to him who has it—nay, worth more
than any sum I could name. A rich man,
without that or some similar taste, does not
know how to enjoy his money. His only
resource is to lieeji on making money, un

is not well developed (Vies not knots - how to
spend it - wisely. A. man worth his two mill

An Eeeentrio Peruvian Plant.
In speaking of the wonderful, fertility of
the sail in Peru, I have never spoken of a
little plant or leaf they haVe here, which I
never met with in any other place or coun

and I hope that some botanist or savant can
vivo me the name and species. The natives
take a, simple pale-green leaf, something
like a fern, and pin -it to the wall with a
common pm l stuck through -it-tpst pin. it
on to the plain adobe wall; sometimes they
fasten it up with a tack. The leaf itself is
not so large as - a geranium leaf. Irredible
as it may seem, from this leaf twi I spread
out tiny tendrils . and 'shoots, had delicate
leaves will form, and will spread and run
and cover the whole wall. I bad one in
my oNvn side-yard, or corral, that covered
the entire side of the wall, and it grew from
one small leaf pinned on to the adobe to
hold it in plwee. It became a , thrifty run

him, in a paroxysm of passion, shooting his
rival, as men have often done, or blowing
-out his own brains. But2vhat could be
more comical than his going out in a melan
choly manner to let his friend shoot at him?
And, again, does anybody believe, whatever
be may say, that men would be constantly
" ensnaring the affections" of their friends'
wives if they were not conscious that they
would be called to account at the pistol's

What a difference there is in 'cow 'mapiage.
went I There across the fields, three fourths
of a mile away is Janes, a wide-awake d

thingabout him stirred up. I am awakes
ed in the tnorning by bearing him yellin_gat
his cows, find by the barking of his yellow
cur of a deg that he sends after them. You.
should see the cows start, the moment they
hear'him yell:-- From their peaceful, k
al rumination, or from their cool-of breakfast off the dewy brass, they
are galvanized by the yell of the farmer and
the yelping o' the yellow cur into a race for
tb mlillting yard. Half of them' come up
throughtla - lane on the run„ panting like
high-res.sure stramboats. They - gouge and

Tilere are, say, twenty of these kind, and by
the time they have swept . through and
tumbleil over the half-drawn bars into the
yatd, '.l im, the hired man, Susan, the hired
girl, Betty, the farmer's daughter, 'and Sam,
the fourteen year old son of the farmer, are
clambering- over the fence into the yard,
with'inilking stools and wooden or tin pails _
in their hands, ready to make these heated
cows "Stand Still IHist I" and submit to
have the lacteal fluid squeezed out of their
Jones told me yesterday that his cows
were "beginning. to shrink their milk bad."
He did not see 'why it s ould be; - feed is
uncommonly good', for ho time 'year.—
Reckon the flies and the elderberry bushes
have something to do wit 'it." I didn't tell
him that I thought his e rand him Self were
most to blame, but I the ght so. '.
Right across the street from him is
neighbor Gibson—one of your quiet, systeln
atic, careful, sensible farmers. He, too, gets
up betimes in the morning, takes his long
staff, quietly walks into the pasture and gent
ly says, "Came boss I Come boss!" The
cows know his voice and heed itns surely as
Jones' cows do his. Re walks slowly.around
them, scarcely speaking to them, quietly
gathers them tbgetbor, and they crop the
sweet herbage as they slowly travel toward
the stable, which they enter-without, goring
each other or violence from any one.l They
take their places in-the stanchions, are quiet
ly fastened, the milkers are at - hand • no
noise is made;,_ the milking is quickly do' ne,
the cows salted and turned, loose.
Gibson's do not "shrink, their milk."
They are not 'allowed to'slo so. When the
pastures do not yield herbage enough, or
"fly time" prevents foraging., there is soil
ing material for them. As is the Man, so is
the brute beneath him. Thenature and hab
its of the ohe are reflected by the other.—
Jones hasn't got ,a cow that will not jump a
staked and riderkd-fence to escape him or his
cur. Gibson hasn't a cow that knows bow
to jump! Jones hasn't a cpw hitt expects a
stoning- or mauling wills a milk stool, or a
kick on ocwions. - Gibson hasn't a cow that
has received a blow or a kick since he owned
her. Jones hasn't a cow that will not run
from him at sight if there is a possible chance
of-getting away. - Gibson hasn't a cow that
will not - come to him-at his call.--.Rurai-New
Influence of the Dam.° -
Touching this subject, I would say, to start
kb, that the influence of the daut is much
more considerable in the majority of cases,
in shaping the chatacter of thti future colt,
than many imagine. To me itteerns natural -
that it shottld be so. Without, reiterating
what I hale already said in a previous see
title of this work, I would ask the reader to • '
observe how intimately the foal is connected
with tie dam, not only previous to birth,
but lo a long period afterward. From the
very 'eginning of its life it is fed by the
moth Or's blood, and affected by her moods.
Before ever it has seen light,- she has had ..
the tithe lied the power tolste mil it with her
vices or her virtues, impart to it her weak-.
ness'or her -strenglh.. Not only the bon& 1 1
structure, OA muscular tissues, the arterial_ I
and venous zest enLagittpie,rray-mother's
constitutional powers and condition, but the
very - nerve-structure and brain-force receive
from her tone and quality. The foal may
be pictured as lying at her mercy, domina
ted by the sweet tyranny of nature. When
thinking of these, things, I cease to wonder
that many of the most famous horses, both
ut the past and present time, closely resew..
We their dams.- Dexter takes his look' from
his mother, the daughter of American Star,
who was sired by the thorougliibred run
ning-horse, Henry. Neither in body, limbs,
head, nor temperament, dues he bear any
likeness to his sire, Ryttlyk's Hambletoniatt.
The same may be said of Goldsmith's llaid,
Lady Thorne, Major Winfield, and others or -
almost equal celebrity.' They aro all moth
er's childeen, as we should, say in respect to
members of the human family. Evety_breed i

-Many farmers make a practice of feeding
their half-starved fowls all they will eat just
before killing, and then send them tamarket
with full crops, in order to-get the price of
poultry fur corn. In this thoy make a mis
take; the crop being swollen to an unusual
,size turns black after being packed, awhile,
and not only shows clearly the dishonest in
tentions of the packer, but injures the sale of
the fowls a great deal more than is gained in
weight. Teed meal only for at least twol
days before killing.
